Description

The Bazu has only been mentioned once in history, but what a place! It was the largest diamond set with the French Blue in an ornament called The Order of the Golden Fleece in 1749. Created by Louis XV, it was considered to be the most lavish and expensive single piece of jewelry in all of Europe. The Golden Fleece was stolen along with many of the French Crown Jewels in September 1792. It was apparently broken up with the Bazu disappearing into the historical fog. This replica is created from a description given in Histoire des Joyaux de la Couronne, Germaine Bapst (1889), the foremost French jeweler of the time.
